and the republicans on the other side. marco rubio of florida delivering the republican response. let's take a quick look at a portion of that. >> his solution to virtually every problem we face is for washington to tax more, borrow more and spend more. the idea that more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help hard-working middle class taxpayers, that's an old idea that's failed every time it's been tried. more government isn't going it help you get ahead. it's going to hold you back. more government isn't going to create more opportunities. it's going to limit them. >> of course, we'll get to watergate later. but in terms of the republican party, does that sound like a party that's willing to work with the president on these things? >> well, the party itself looks pretty unwilling to work with the president. just yesterday the house speaker john boehner in a meeting with -- breakfast meeting with television correspondents and anchors said he didn't think that president obama had the guts to do something big, to fix entitlement. that doesn't sound like somebody about to make a de

republican senator marco rubio was not so pleased saying ispart quote this legislation is half-baked and seriously flawed. if actually proposed the president's bill would be dead on arrival in congress. i want to bring in ryan grim. good to see both of you. >> thanks. >> thanks for having me. >> ryan, white house chief of state. said the white house wanted to be ready with a backup plan. take a listen. >> we have not proposed anything to capitol hill yet. we have a bill. we are doing what the president said we would do last month in las vegas which is we are preparing. we are going to be ready. we have developed the proposals so we have them in a position to succeed. >> if immigration reform has bipartisan support why would the white house feel compelled to fluke their own plan. >> this is the legacy of health care reform. the white house is still scarred from the dramatic experience of watching max baucus spend months haggling with olympia snowe in a room in a senatet office building and also derailed health care reform. that is the only thing that allowed it to drag out over

rubio would have said, you want to know what the state of the union is? let me tell you what the state of the union is. average income of americans has dropped 5%. not since barack obama became president of the united states, but since the recession ended. our economy's in transition. more americans are being left behind. senior citizens aren't going to be assured of these entitlement programs for long. we're $6 trillion deeper in debt today than we were when barack obama became president. barack obama's allowed the national debt to go up by 60% himself since he was president. 4 million more americans are out of work today than were working when barack obama became president. we've got the weakest recovery in over 70 years with barack obama as president of the united states. it is time to think big. it is time to go long. it is time to come together. why couldn't anybody in washington say that last night? >> and there was a lack of urgency to it. there was a sense that -- it was a little bit -- so much depends on what the baseline is. and the president was almost saying things are impr
in to the duelling responses in my rant later. right now focusing on rubio. he's such a gifted communicator. he really is. that's not spin. that's not veneer. >> i agree with this. >> i'm hoping tonight that he puts on a positive message. let's be honest. this is not a response to the state of the union. this is already been written. it is basically designed to present an alternative view. i love that. so i actually -- one of my new rules for the gop is to stop describing messages in terms of obama. so i hope that it's less anti-obama and more positive, optimistic, i expect him to put in a lot of personal stories about success and growing up as an immigrant and i'm really hoping for that young revitalizing optimistic message of what conservatism can do and bring for opportunity. >> optimistic message from the republicans, that would be new. i think about -- >> it wouldn't be new. it's new of a last few years. >> you're describing the rnc speech and had that potential to launch a career in recent years. this rebuttal, generally, only has the possibility to sink a career and the odds for rubio ji
, rubio, the tea party response with paul. many believe that this is another indication of a divide if you will within the republican party. i want to play what senator paul had to say on marco rubio. let's play it. >> there's a lot of energy from the tea party and consider themselves mostly republican, they will chastise even the republican establishment so they want an independent voice. i don't see it as necessarily divisive. i won't say anything that marco rubio is wrong. this isn't about he and i. this is about the tea party. >> so he won't say marco rubio is wrong but he might not say he's right. so here we have the second story line. >> exactly. >> of the night here. is this, though, really a rubio versus rand paul? >> i think it could be a foreshadow of something in four years to tell you the truth. no. i think at a time when republicans really needed to show a unified front, this is doing exactly the opposite. i think a lot of people in washington, i know a lot of journalists will tune in to -- >> we just lost her mid sentence. let's bring in chris. there was an article yesterday
are the enablers of republicans. >>> and later, a look at how the rubio water break was handled by the late night comedians.

-field advantage and he ends up looking like kenneth the page. >> i don't think rubio will look like that or sound like that. i think he will obviously, it will be a play on immigration. it will be hopefully an economic response to the president. to your point, joe, the president has said, we've got to do something about entitlements. the question is what? what are you willing to put on the table? is he going to lay out a specific or some direction towards a specific policy. that's what republicans will look for. more importantly to your question, they have an opportunity to frame this economic argument. you still have 21 million americans unemployed. the rate is still up. you can frame that argument and say to the president, take the laundry list you laid out tonight, give us the bill and we will wait for it in the house and embrace it and work with you and the senate democrats if that's what you want. give us the bill. >> i think the whole speech is going to be in spanish so we won't know what he says. >> i can go to sleep much much earlier and wait for the translation. >> talk about a no win si
's talk about that, chip, because right now the names being talked about for the rebuttal, marco rubio, we've got rand paul, and we've also got ted nugent, who is going to be a guest of stock mab tonight, coming in. so, when we look at this, people are kind of in shock about these three names being put together, but listen to how michael steele talks about what this sends from the republican party, its message. >> so you're going to have rubio give a response to the president, and rand paul give a response to the response to the response of the president. >> that's the republican party. >> this is the problem. does this make any sense to anyone in america, to have a bifurcated message coming out of america? >> chip, does it make any sense? >> well, you know, what happens is, the republican party's always been kind of the executive-based party, and we've always liked having the president, because we've got one person in charge. in lieu of not having the president, we've had a lot of members of congress who think they're in church. i think it does send kind of a mixed message. but marco rubi
like marco rubio coming out against it. if actually proceed poed the president's bill will be dead on arrival in congress leaving us with unsecured borders and a broken legal immigration system for years to come. i mean. sure, republicans will shoot down anything that came from the white house anyway, is that all part of this? >> it absolutely is. in a way, whether or not the white house meant to leak this or not, they wanted this out there and in a way it gets republicans a lot of cover. they can shoot down the force for ray and that gives them a lot of room to work with congress and come up with their own deal without looking like they're cooperating with the president f he has his eyes on 2016, he does not want to look like he was hand-in-hand with the president on this very important legislative issue >> one of the senators that is working part of this bipartisan group is senator chuck schumer. let me play what he had to say. >> we talked to senator rubio and he is fully on board with our process and i am very hopeful that in march we will have a bipartisan bill. i am happy wit
issue for the gop is not just the message. they can't agree on the messenger, the reason why rubio and paul both giving responses to the president's state of the union address. >> we have seen that and you can have as senator manchin said a difference of opinion within the same party and seen as strong. there was a time where you had the tea party and moderate republicans and seen as strong and now a us against them kind of thing happening there but i want -- you bring up marco rubio. i want to play what wallace said, since he's givening the republican response and running down the laundry list and why he's a star in the party. let me play it. >> he's everything we need and more. he's modern. he knows who tupac is. he is on social media. he's part of the -- sort of he has the blessings of the old political establishment. >> this is just surface stuff that's like lipstick on a pig. the bottom line is the republicans have a core values problem, not a who knows who tupac is. >> the tupac problem. molly, he's modern, know who is tupac is. i can't imagine that marco rubio and i get what
